Casting on the River Alness in Scotland

thanks to those on the board who suggested the Alness... amazing scenery
Landed my first Atlantic Salmon!
Working sharing some photos... if i can find a photobucket replacement

A tough situation
Elevated casting spot
fast inside current with an eddy
far side of the middle tail out is the sweet spot.

Don’t blow the anchor... shallow d loop... get the distance... get the fly fishing from the second it lands... keep line off the water.

All sounds great in theory? Right? No fished hooked.

Rod - Bob Meiser 13ft 6in Highlander S 8wt
Reel - 1920s Hardy Perfect Salmon 3 3/4
Line - Scandi Head
Leader - 10ft mono
Running Line - OPST lazer line

appreciate a like on youtube if you liked it

Nice video. I gave it a like and ended up subscribing. That is an excellent channel you have developed.
SLSS and ramcatt like this.
